Bryan Singer Responds To Abuse Claims And Bows Out of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Events

The X-Men: Days of Future Past director has broken his silence about the "completely false" sexual abuse allegations, with a statement that confirms he won't take part in the film's press tour. Check it out

For those unaware, last week, a lawsuit was filed against Bryan Singer with claims that the X-Men director "forcibly sodomized" an underage Michael Egan nearly 15 years ago. Now for the first time, Singer has addressed Egan's allegations and confirmed that he will be removing himself from pubicity for the upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  "The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false," says Bryan Singer (via Variety). "I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career. So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I've decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is. I want to thank fans, friends and family for all their amazing and overwhelming support."

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past to save our future. X-Men: Days of Future Past has wrapped filming, and stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender,, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Adan Canto, Fan Bingbing, Anna Paquin, Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Ellen Page & Booboo Stewart. Bryan Singer directs the film in theaters May 23, 2014
